Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Chondromas are benign lesions composed of mature hyaline cartilage. A nasal chondroma is an infrequent entity and it arises rarely from the nasal septum. Most of the nasal chondroma cases in the medical literature have originated from the posterior part of the septum. This article presents a rare case of nasal chondroma. A 47-year-old female patient consulted to our clinic complaining of a lump of medium hardness at the tip of her nose. Surgery revealed a nasal chondroma, localized at the domal alar cartilage. The case was presented in detail, and the diagnosis, treatment, and follow-up of nasal chondromas were discussed in light of relevant literature.
